Orientation Registration

Sign Up Sign Up for a Virtual Registration Lab

  • As a NOVA student you are able to participate in a virtual registration lab offered through ANY of our campuses. You must sign up at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled virtual registration lab in order to be eligible to participate.
  • When signing up, please provide a PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS that you have access to and check regularly. (Prior to your enrollment in classes you may not have access to your NOVA student email account.) Providing a personal email ensures that orientation staff are able to connect with you with important information prior to your virtual registration lab session.
  • After you have signed up, you will receive a confirmation email with important information including the date and time of your virtual registration lab. This email is an opportunity for you to provide SAT/ACT/IB scores or HS transcripts for English and math placement and will also include a link to use if you need to reschedule your virtual registration lab. A separate email with a link to the Zoom webinar for your virtual registration lab will be sent the day before your scheduled lab.
  • First Year Outreach -  offers resources designed to support new students through the process of getting started at NOVA.
